  1. Raleigh Tourist

    Anyone into English 3 speeds? This looks like a good price for a pretty nice Tourist:

    Thanks everyone for weighing in - looks like I'll pass.

    As a point of curiosity, I'm now wondering whether it's maybe a Univega...

    Confirming a Miyata 1000 frame?

    Someone is selling a frame locally and states that it's a Miyata 1000. However, it's been repainted, so is there anything I can be looking for to confirm one way or the other whether that's...

    Alright, here's a bad cell phone pic of my recently acquired (and a bit beat-up-looking) World Voyageur. This was the day I got it. Note the lack of bar tape or outer covering on the saddle. And...

    Thanks to all who have weighed in. So it sounds like I shouldn't have much to worry about so long as it appears to be aligned correctly when I use the string test. That said, I'm kind of with...

    Both of your proposed options, restoration or just stripping to chrome, really begin with stripping to chrome as a first step. So I'd say go for it. You can always determine later whether that was...

    Stand included with bike because the clamp is frozen and needs to be cut off to free the bike... ;)

    I thought about that, but I tried holding that straight edge against a couple other bikes and didn't see the same effect.

    The paint is not original, and it came without the fork, so it's...

    I think there's probably always been a distinction between people who want to understand how their things work and want to be able to fix them, modify them, etc., and those who just don't feel it's...
  11. Any experience with frame tube straightening?

    So I am the new-ish owner of the Claud Butler Dalesman / Holdsworth Mistral described in this thread. I thought I noticed something about it when I was looking at it in person for the first time,...

    Miche Primato bb install question

    Hey guys,

    This is probably not even worth asking about, but I just to be sure. (I've looked around with the part number, and all I've found are places that stock it rather than installation...

    Thanks for confirming, guys. I was reasonably sure it didn't matter, but I thought I remembered reading something some time about not mixing chainring and cassette manufacturers due to potential...

    Campy crankset with Shimano cassette

    Apologies since I'm sure this has been asked before, but I'm wondering how much wrath I risk from the Velominati if I use a Campy crankset with a Shimano cassette. It occurs to me that there's all...

    Yeah, I think that was probably the one - it had some sort of weird, early concept aero bars. I would have pulled those post haste.

    And sorry for the delay in response - I've been offline.

    Hi guys - thanks for your advice on this. Actually, I'm in SD rather than LA, so I won't be taking advantage of those deals (unless there's a really ridiculous one maybe...).

    So after having...

    Hey - thanks, guys. I'll take a look at it, and if it seems to be in good running condition, and reasonably good aesthetic condition for its age, I'll probably pick it up.

    Much obliged.
  18. Centurion Dave Scott Ironman current value?

    Hi all,

    I've come across a Centurion Dave Scott Ironman, and the seller would like $125. I thought this was a pretty good price, but as I discussed the bike with the seller he mentioned (in a...

    Interesting ideas - particularly that Veloce link. I didn't realize you could get a full Campy group for less than $500 US. I haven't seen Centaur in anything but black, and silver feels more...

    That's a good point - I probably shouldn't be so focused on trying to make it into the "ultimate" version just yet.

    I definitely don't intend it to be a wallhanger any time soon. While I probably...

    Thanks, guys. That's a good idea, unworthy1 - I'll try to get a better pic of the seat cluster and take some more of the fork. I'm not familiar enough with Reynolds forkblades to know whether those...
  22. Opinions on building up this James Pickering frame?

    Hello, everybody. A while back I came across this frame: a 1970-ish, James Pickering road bike. It's a handmade, double-butted Reynolds 531 frame, with Campagnolo drop outs. It came with a Zeus...

    Hey, Dave, with those braze-ons, I'm wondering if that bike wasn't designed as a PBP / rando bike rather than a TdF-style racer.

    I think you should buy it on principle if only to fix the handlebars (Graeme Obree notwithstanding).

    Seems a great price on a pretty decent bike.

    Hey, nlerner (Neil, right?), the serial number is WB5--8596. I think the dashes are actually 0s, but they're hard to make out. I think that actually makes it a '75 then, right?

    I think maybe...
